We sincerely hope (and shall strive to make sure) that this conference will be a successful scientific event which will advance the physics of neutron stars through a great number of excellent talks, posters, and stimulating discussions between scientists working on diverse approaches to the subject. During the conference we plan to organize a number of social and cultural activities for participants and their accompanying persons. We expect to create warm and cozy atmosphere at the meeting, and the unmatched beauty of our city is always with us.

We look forward to seeing you in Saint Petersburg this summer.
